    [Suggestion] Channel Properties value field type

    I hadn't noticed this until today when I was going about copying some text I have in a channel description from one server to another and found that all the text I previously had in this channel description wasn't all there.

    As it stands right now, the value field is a VARCHAR(255) type which means if I'm to have a lengthy description (such as the channel etiquette in English Talk 1 on the test server), if I were to restart my server, upon restart, I'll only have up to the 255th character in that description (including the bbcode attributes). The only way to capture all the text without it disappearing is to change this field to a TEXT field.

    TEXT type isn't so space saving.
    I am not sure but you might be able to set VARCHAR 1000 instead.
    dunno Whats the point of longer description?? Do you want to have wikipedia there??
    I tryed it on beta15 just now, it throws me error if its too long. after restart its as its suppose to be.

    create table tabb (id int, val VARCHAR(1000));
    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.02) sec

    I had a server etiquette posted in the description of channel room. That in itself can be lengthy. As it stands, mine is 6,414 characters including spaces.

    I probably should mention that I am using the MySQL backend. I don't know how close the other database storage method is to MySQL.
